How can I describe Mr. Hanky in polite language? A scatological figure maybe. In reality he is more of a post-modern take on Jiminy Cricket. If you watch the show he is the most sincere out of all of the characters. He always manages to wrap up the episodes he is on with a sincere and happy ending. Also, as is made clear in the first episode he is on, he is a suitable holiday figure for people who are non-denominational. Anyway, I seriously think the creators of South Park should create a Mr. Hanky spin-off series. Having to cope with an alcoholic wife and disabled son, I think Mr. Hanky could use the money. As they say in the song, "if you eat fiber on Christmas eve, Mr. Hanky will be sure and come down your tree".
